2. GIS – Series of spatial and attribute queries, followed by short reflection on tasks under taken
Name the restaurant(s) within 2km of Arnside railway station
3. Remote Sensing – Questions based on image interpretation
The land surface appears darker in the IR image acquired at 11:30 than in the image from 7:30. Why?
In the true colour composite image areas of dense vegetation appear green but in the false colour
composite they appear red. Why?
“The practicals were easy to follow, provided time was allowed for
ArcIMS problems. I am looking forward to GIS?RS in the 2nd year”
“Have alternative locations to be able to do the
practicals as labs are often booked out for lessons”
“When ArcIMS is working the practicals are interesting,
but it can be frustrating when it does not work”
“Stability of ArcIMS only improvement required.
Especially on remote PCs, i.e. ones in study bedrooms”
“I have bought a lap-top for completing computer
based tasks and expect to be able to use it”
What are your experiences of using web based GIS or teaching introductory concepts to large groups?
